Description/History

This 24-acre property contains fields, forests and woodland border, providing habitat, forage and shelter for native plants and animals. The forested area contains a mix of hardwood and evergreen trees including red and white oak, birch, black spruce, white pine, red maple, and more. There are also many well-established native plants, wildflowers, and saplings. The field area is buffered from the forest by taller grasses and shrubs, with most of the upper fields still in agricultural use. Several fruit trees are scattered throughout the field.  The lower fields have some woody vegetation, providing habitat and cover for birds and mammals. The protected property was historically a farm and orchard and was restored to commercial and nonprofit agricultural use for a variety of field crops.
